11. Ice Battle Chess

February 19, 2011

The Food Network will continue filming their new TV show, ‘Ice Brigade’, featuring local Ice Gurus Randy Finch and Derek Maxfield, on Tuesday, January 11 at 10 a.m.

For the segment, a 15′ x 15′ chess board will be painted onto the ice rink at Rosa Parks Circle and giant blocks of ice will be carved into the chess pieces that will be used in an actual chess match. As a piece is taken in the game, it will be smashed.

The Ice Gurus are looking for 1,000 people to be extras (unpaid).  Filming begins at 10 a.m. and the Battle begins at noon.

Don’t have time to be an extra? Plenty of great restaurants surrounding Rosa Park Circle to stop by on your lunch hour and take a peak.
